After a scoreless opening 20 minutes, rookie Carter Sawchuk brought the puck into Neepawa's zone and fired a perfect shot past Kolby Thornton to put Dauphin up 1-0. Just under two minutes later at the 3:37 mark, Benoit Mowbray tied the game up.

At the 15:25 mark, Smelski took a perfect drop pass from Brendan Arnold and Bradyn did the rest as he fired a wrister past Thornton to record his first goal of 2019 in his debut of the new year. Dauphin led the contest after 40 minutes, 2-1.

The Kings continued to bring the heat as Grady Hobbs showed off his sharpshooting skills with a rush that ended up in the back of Neepawa's net. That set the stage for the Dauphin boy.

Jaxon Heeney batted down the puck in the neutral zone, brought the puck into Neepawa's zone where he dropped the puck off to Smelski. From there, Bradyn made a beautiful move to get around the Neepawa defender and he went to the backhand and went bar down to give Dauphin their fifth goal of the game and it was Bradyn's second.

"That felt amazing. I got around the guy and I was looking for an open place, it was kind of lucky on my part but it went in," said Smelski. 

It was Bradyn's first game of 2019. He was a healthy scratch for the first five games and he definitely made a case to stay in the lineup going forward.

"Having this performance I think showed Doug and Mitch how much I care," said Smelski. "I haven't been playing much but I just need to stay positive. It's all about the team in the end and I'll do whatever I can to help the guys."

Ethan Carnegie and Trayden Catcheway led the way with two goals each. 

Here is the full schedule and we'll have the results all weekend long!

The Parkland Bantam Rangers regular season schedule continues to dwindle down just like any other team. That mean's the club only has a little more time to fine tune things before the AAA Rural Provincial Championships that aren't far away.

The next opportunity to do so comes this weekend as the club plays the Central Plains Capitals in a home and home. Tomorrow they will play in Portage and Sunday's rematch will be in Grandview.

"You know, we're getting better every time we hit the ice," said Tom White, Head Coach. "Players are really buying into our structure and their individual roles. They know they can compete when they play at their best, and when we do that, we're pretty tough to beat."

After tomorrow's road game, the Rangers play four straight games on home ice. January 20 - Grandview, January 26 & 27 - Credit Union Place, February 1 - Ste. Rose. 

"We have 10 games here before the Provincial Championships and we want to build some momentum heading into those, so it's important to use these games to our advantage," said White. 

Of those 10 games, eight of them come against teams in Parkland's conference. The Rangers are 8-15-3 which have them tied with the CP Capitals who they play twice this weekend for fifth place. Parkland also plays the Southwest Cougars twice, Yellowhead Chiefs twice, and the Pembina Valley Hawks, Brandon Wheat Kings, Winnipeg Warriors, and Winnipeg Sharks all once.

The team is six points behind the third-place Brandon Wheat Kings and Southwest Cougars who both have 25 points. Pembina Valley is in second with 27 and Yellowhead is at 36. The Rangers have a great chance to move up in the standings as they face a ton of conference opponents.

"We still need to work on some areas like our power play, and we're working on that and it's improving," added White. "Our defensive zone commitment has really improved and our goaltending. We're allowing nearly one goal less per game lately which is a huge improvement."

Kyan Grouette leads the Rangers with 33 points (9G) while Rylan Gibbs has 29 (13G) and Steven Arp has 16 goals to lead the team and is third in overall scoring with 27 points. 

"Those guys are goal scorers and they always seem to be in the right place at the right time," said White. "Everyone on this team is doing a great job."

Sunday's game in Grandview is at 5:00 p.m.

Parkland Midget Rangers:

The team is back at Credit Union Place twice this weekend as they open up a two-game set against the Kenora Thistles tomorrow evening.

The Rangers have sunk to the bottom of the standings and they'll be in tough once again as they play the 13-18 Thistles. Parkland has played the Thistles pretty well this season, however. They lost 5-4 and 6-3 and both games were extremely close.

The Rangers will be looking to get out of a streak that has seen them lose 19 of their last 20 games.

After this weekend, Parkland will play three straight road games leading up to begin February.

Saturday's puck is set to drop at Credit Union Place at 7:30 while puck drop is set for 1:30 on Sunday.
